Review: The Civilized Bride Show

Thanks to Steph at Babbling Brides, I was able to get media passes to the Civilized Bride Show. And now, it’s time for me to tell you guys all about it!!

The Civilized Bride Show was held at Airship #37 at the Distillery District. G and I arrived around 6:00 pm and were instantly wow’d by what we saw – walking up to the entrance, there was a small enchanted looking tent with candles lit inside it.

I won’t lie, I was slightly apprehensive walking in… it was my first time at such an event and I had no idea what to expect! We dropped off our stuff (we had gone shopping – I bought a gorgeous pair of shoes) at the coat check, gave our names at the door, and walked in… to a gorgeous room!

What I loved:

  • The opportunity to speak to every single vendor in the room – everyone was really nice and I didn’t leave with a headache!
  • The uniqueness of the vendors: the mesh of people at the show was great. There were wedding planners, photographers, cake shops, florists, vintage cocktail hats/veils, etc – there was something there for every type of bride.
  • Culturally inclusive: the show was a good representation of the diversity in Toronto.
  • Ability to see (and taste) samples of work done by the vendors
  • The yummy appetizers

Favourite Vendors:

  • Perfectionista Inc: Sabrina was super friendly and did a great job organizing the event!
  • The Wedding Cake Shoppe: Oh em gee. The ladies at the Wedding Cake Shoppe are super nice and sooo talented. The cupcakes were to die for! They had many desserts out: Chocolate Cupcake with Peanut Butter Icing, Red Velvet, Green Tea Cupcake, Raspberry Chocolate Truffle Cupcake, Pecan Tarts (I have to say, these tarts are among the best I’ve ever had!) and some yummy macarons!
  • Studio Studios Photography and Video: The nicest photographers there! Very friendly, knowledgeable and innovative (one of the photographers, Keith, is an illustrator and showed us a comic-book inspired illustration of a couple).
  • Fresh Inc Mehendi: I’ve had the opportunity to meet with Fresh Inc before and as always, I love their work!
  • Sara Baig Designs: a very sweet person!
